Sitepoint Takes a Look at Valentina Studio, DB and Reports

Taylor Ren over at Sitepoint gives Valentina Studio, Valentina DB and Valentina Reports a look over. His report primarily touches on Valentina Studio (for Linux) but also in context with MySQL. Check it out, and feel free to comment on your experiences – Taylor is very engaging with his readers.

[NEW] Generating Test/Bench Data for Data Focused Apps (Part 2)

We have implement Stored Procedure ‘GenerateDataFor()’, which solves the task described in the part1 of this article.

We have added into Valentina Wiki new section, where we will keep this and future other Stored Procedures By Paradigma Software.

On this page you can find link to WIKI page, which describes GenerateDataFor() procedure and contains download link.

[NEW] Generating Test/Bench Data for Data Focused Apps (Part 1)

There are several database tools available for generating records for table T with some random data. Usually these tools can…

  • generate the test data itself;
  • format the data for replication of some bug

Yes, both very useful.  But as speed junkies and test pilots, we also want to use this feature to

  • generate data for use in benchmarks

The difference between test and bench data, is that for benchmarking today, tomorrow and months or years later, we should generate the same records into a Table. Otherwise how we can compare results of a benchmarks as computer scientists? For tests it is okay to use random values in records, but benchmarks require exactness.

We were going to add such feature into Valentina Studio, but then we started thinking about benchmarking the Valentina engine (made in C++).  It is clear then that we need such a feature right in the engine.  So how to implement it?
